Sledding Death at Winter Olympics

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Okay, my first Olympic impression was not what I had planned on it being. I had settled in all prepared to rate, laugh and generally enjoy the opening of the games; but nooooooooo! This was not to be.

Right off the bat they had to ruin my entire evening with the sledding death. Not because I'm a softy or anything, but because they had to run the video of the actual wreck. I understand the need this generation has with the visual for everything but running that video was just in BAD TASTE!

Imagine your mother being way across the world, all full of pride, wanting you to do well, and bragging to all her friends; when the video of you crashing to your death comes on the television. I'm sorry but I would not want my mother to have to watch that before she was ready. They could have waited a few days; we did not even know the video existed.

Besides, what idiot designer put steel columns 10 foot on center, 2 feet from the track, with no safety barrier? I know they are saying it was the sledder who lost control but still the track was poorly designed. I do not think I have ever watched a sledding event where there was not at least one wreck. Plan for the worst, hope for the best.

Sorry for the sober thought, the whole thing just hit me the wrong way.
